    I haven't started revising yet :/ But I will tomorrow...

    During Easter I plan to do 3-4 hours a day, I used the 'MyStudyPlan' app to prioritise revision slots but also not to over prioritise, (If it was up to me, I would only revise for Chemistry.)

    During school I will do 1 subject for 1 hour a day after school (or 1 past paper).

    During study leave I will probably do 3-4 hours a day again, but I will prioritise upcoming exams.

    I say this, but I will probably do 2 hours of cramming the night before the exam :/

    ...being optimistic, I hope that this works, I did hardly anything for the January exams and I still did alright, so any revision is a plus.

    Good luck.

    I use that app too!
    I'm doing 2-3 hours after college each day, with fridays off 5-6 hours each weekend (although some weekends I've already arranged other things so am doing none...) During study leave I've also allocated 5-6 hours.

    It is a good app , I just wish I had discovered it when I was doing my GCSEs.

    I have more time but I definitely will not be socialising (introvert). I wish I could do more revision, but I suffer from, what I like to call, "hyperprocrastination" eg. I've been procrastinating for 10 hours today, and that's not even my record.

    Ah I'm an introvert as well so it works for me , I hope you feel better soon, its quite contagious on tsr :P Revision is just one of those things you gotta do (especially for meh subjects like history and econ) but for maths I'm having a blast haha

    I spend the entire day infront of my books. How much revision goes on is only told during the exam itself.. :ninja:

    Its quite sad really, but I look forward to after these exams when I can get my life back

    OP if you want the most reliable results you should add an extra category:

    During Easter?
    during days when you have school?
    and during study leave?
    Asian or non Asian?

    also have you started revising properly now?

    Do you think the concept of a ''burn out'' is a real possibility? I've never really pushed myself to that point.

    I would like to be able to pull 6 hours + revision a day, but I personally benefit from short 45 minute periods of high intensity, and maybe do 3 or 4 periods a day separated by decent brakes.

    Aaahh, nothing like a bit a racial banter every now and again

    But at the moment I do about an hour and a half or two hours after school, now that I've finished my EPQ I'll dedicate the 3 hours a day I spent doing that to revision! I'm prioritizing Maths at the moment, Physics is a doddle and Chemistry I only need a B, but Maths.. Ergh.

    Such an easy subject, yet the exams kill me EVERY TIME and I don't know why ''/.

    Between two and five hours a day. And naturally, it'll increase closer to exams. Today I've done 2h15 and I feel like it's not enough for today. So I'll resume later. I can't wait until exams are over, I actually want plans this summer!

    Haha it's so odd how I enjoy my own company then wonder why I barely get invited to parties, not go to many and would rather read a book. Hopefully after A2 the balance will get right
